Earnings season is picking up steam this week. Over 400 companies are reporting including a lot of the S&P 500.

But which ones have the best track record?

Tracey dug through all of the charts to find only the best.

Despite what you might think, it's not easy for companies to beat every quarter or nearly every quarter. It's only a select few who have this amazing track record.

But here are four who have that great record and they're looking to do it again this week.

1. Johnson & Johnson JNJ hasn't missed in over 5 years. Shares are off their highs as investors fret about the drug sector under the Trump Administration.

2. Prologis Inc. PLD also has a perfect 5-year record. This big cap REIT, which manages logistics and distribution facilities around the world, saw its shares break out in 2016. Can it keep the momentum?

3. Steel Dynamics STLD has missed just once, all the way back in 2014. Steel stocks are back in favor. This is one to watch.

4. Lockheed Martin LMT has one of the best charts on the Street. The defense contractors have a great record of beating. Will it continue?

What else should you know about these earnings charts? Tune into the short video to find out.
